  • As flu outbreak numbers rise, the HSE says it's not too late to get your vaccine

Influenza A (H1N1), or swine flu, is the dominant strain this winter and is in the "early stages so far", according to Kevin Kelleher, the HSE's assistant national director of health protection.

Various global stakeholders have indicated the benefits of vaccines that induce broad immunity so as to prime the population against newly emerging influenza viruses or other respiratory viruses of pandemic potential.

Each year there is a different vaccine, and the vaccinations protect people from several strains of flu.

While anyone can get the flu, those with the highest risks of serious complications include young children; women who are pregnant; people with chronic health conditions such as asthma, diabetes, or heart and lung disease; and people ages 65 and older. The CDC estimates 183 kids in the USA died from the flu a year ago and tens of thousands ended up in the hospital.

That has put an incredible strain on emergency units across the country, including the one at Montreal Children's Hospital. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. "Our peak numbers have been over 300 patients a day". "Getting an antibiotic you don't need can cause antibiotic resistance to develop, and then if you get pneumonia, for example, we may not have good drugs or any drugs to treat the infection".

One of those was two-year-old Kaelynn Hansen, who died on December 8 at Saskatoon's Royal University Hospital.

For nearly everyone. The CDC recommends flu shots for anyone 6 months and older. The vaccine takes one to two weeks to start working.

"We were totally in shock", his father, Wesley Kequahtooway, told CTV News. The Minister of Health of Georgia stated that 640 people are now being treated with the virus in the country, of which 39 are in intensive care units. Now recovering, he will be returning to his community this week.

If you do get sick, stay home until you're fever-free for 24 hours. That, he added, will not happen again.

We report these findings back to the CDC, and they use that information to help determine how to formulate future vaccines. "We don't want anybody going through what we had to go through this past month".

"In terms of whether the flu season has peaked or not, we really don't know", Price said. For instance, in 2016-17, there were only 128 cases through the same time period and 41 in 2015-16.

Northern Health says ongoing prevention is the best way to reduce the risk or avoid getting the flu. Do you have a sense of how effective this year's flu vaccine will be?
